I know you want to eat healthier, and like the rest of us, you want your food to taste great as well. If you eat a lot of salad already that is fantastic, but I know you get bored of the same thing all the time, so I am going to show you 3 amazing healthy salad recipes.
Finding ways to get enough vegetables can be a challenge, I know, but there is no better way to get a variety of vegetables in your daily meals than in salads. You may be surprised by this, but there are plenty of salads that are not healthy.
If you are drowning your salads in dressing, croutons, cheese,, etc you may be surprised how many calories you are taking in. You want your calories to come from nutrient dense foods that nourish your body. I don’t know about you, but if I am going to load up on calories, give me a cheeseburger and some fries!
Eating a salad everyday is a great way to get your vegetables, help with weight loss, and improve your health. Enjoy these recipes and remember eating healthy is supposed to be fun and taste good!
I always cut all the veggies up into really small pieces, I like my salads better that way. Take the time to make a big salad like this and eat on it for the next few days. Take a whole lemon and squeeze it over the salad and it will keep fresh longer.
The dressing amounts is for an individual salad. I am not big on exact measurements, I add to my liking, so If you want more of a certain vegetable and less of another that is fine.
